Before I went on this Baltic cruise I was afraid it would be a bust photographically and I would gain a pound per day. I had visions of being herded around in large groups through places so crowded that meaningful photography would be impossible. I did gain weight, but not so much, and I have since worked it off. Sometimes my vision of impossible crowds came true, but not that often. I had completely failed to anticipate just how breathtaking views from the upper decks of the ship would be. Several posts back I published a series of landscapes from the Oslo Fjord where one of the above photographs was made.
I also want to thank everyone for the wonderful comments they made to my last post. Several said they come here because of the travel content. I find that interesting as this is not a travel blog in the usual sense.
